QT Hotels & Resorts Group to Open the 200-room QT Sydney
in Australia, a Member of the  Design Hotels Group

New York - August 8, 2012:
 The total transformation of two landmark buildings in the heart of Sydney will be complete on September 17 with the opening of QT Sydney, a 200-room deluxe hotel whose design and sophistication will take visitors to Sydney to new levels of both pampering and "cool." A member of the  Design Hotels™ group, the QT Sydney will be third property of the QT Hotels & Resorts group.

Brainchild of Australian hotel magnate, David Seargeant, QT Sydney is an ambitious melding of the former Gowings department store and the adjacent State Theatre at the intersection of Market and George Streets in the heart of downtown Sydney. Both the Gothic, Palazzo-style Gowings building and the State Theatre (an amalgam of Gothic, Venetian and Art Déco influences) opened in 1929. "Converting these classic buildings into the hippest and most luxurious of hotels - all the while respecting and retaining their landmark status," says Seargeant, "has been an extraordinary and challenging process, involving some of Australia's most creative architects, designers and taste-makers."

In addition to 200 guest rooms designed in a dozen styles, QT Sydney will also feature The Gilt Lounge (expected to become one of Sydney's hottest meeting spots), the Gowings Bar and Grill, the Parlour Lane Roasters café, the glamorous spaQ (complete with six treatment rooms, Sydney's first hammam, a nail salon and an old-fashioned men's barber-shop) and meeting space for up to 200 participants.
